What Is Knife Damage?

Some interesting news from Sweden, that bastion of liberal democracy and political correctness. How do the ever-so-woke Swedes deal with Islamist terrorism? Why, they follow the Obama playbook and refuse to call it Islamist terrorism. In that way there is less Islamist terrorism. Do you find this surprising? If you do, you haven’t been paying attention.

And the Swedes have put another wrinkle in the social fabric. They have declared that anyone who shares images of Islamist terrorism will be jailed. Keep in mind, images of these heinous acts of terrorism were posted on Facebook…. 

It’s a culture shift of major proportions. You can say anything you want about Christians. You can be as anti-Semitic as you wish. But if you dare speak ill of Islam you will be charged with blasphemy against the prophet of Islam.So much for free expression.

The case involves a hideous murder committed in Morocco. Two female Scandinavian tourists were camping out in Morocco when they were attacked by ISIS followers. They were stabbed to death. One was beheaded.  The ISIS terrorists sent the images to the mother of one of the girls. 

Zero Hedge has the story:

Maren Ueland, 28, of Norway and Louisa Vesterager Jespersen, 24, of Denmark were murdered while backpacking in the High Atlas mountains of Morocco. Both girls were stabbed multiple times, while one of them was beheaded on video. The culprits can then be seen pledging allegiance to the Islamic State leader Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi.

The ISIS fanatics gloated about the killing - while images of the killing were posted to the Facebook page of Ueland's mother, and the video was sent via Private Message to Ms. Jesperson's friends, according to the Daily Mail.

Now, the Swedish state television station has taken a page from the Obama administration… and has declared that the murder had nothing to do with Islam-- you remember, George Bush called it a religion of peace:

Swedish state broadcaster SVT has outraged viewers after they ran an article claiming that the gruesome ISIS-inspired murder of two Scandinavian girls in Morocco "had nothing to do with Islam," before warning Swedes that sharing a graphic beheading video of the incident could result in up to four years of imprisonment.

So, the Swedish state television station censored the news. Or better, it distorted the event beyond recognition… the better to promote social harmony via social repression:

During a Christmas Eve report on the murders SVT made no mention of the fact that one of the women was beheaded, nor the ISIS link, called their injuries "knife damage," yet warned viewers of the legal risks of sharing the video of the incident.

You have to be impressed. Since they could not call the murders “workplace violence” they called stabbings and a beheading: knife damage.

This is "Dancing for the Boa Constrictor"

Antoine de St-Exupery wrote of a man he met during the Spanish Civil War who was trying to be extra friendly to his neighbors in the hope that they wouldn't decide he was a Fascist and shoot him. St-Ex was reminded him of the legend of a monkey which **danced for the boa constrictor**, in the hope that the snake would be so enchanted that it would let the monkey go on living.

Sam,ask Solzhenitsyn.
Specifically about the Chekists fearing if they would live to see their homes,after a night out harassing the population.

Apparently mankind sufferers from a form of "legal" terror, (sometimes called "Law" or Government", but more accurately "Tyranny"), that meets or exceeds the human affliction beheadings represent.

"Knife damage" would be blood on the person, blood of the floor, blood all around, and chunks of person scattered about. Although a dead body by itself would do...

Now I understand how cultures die. I have seen groups of people make stupid decisions but I always believed them to be limited in number. Now I realize how widespread such insanity can be. Progressiveness is just mental illness run rampant.
